Editorial Reviews

Watch as pop culture's most baffling urban myths and legends are debunked, decoded and demystified by MythBusters Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage, who blow the lid off that stuff you've always wondered about, like: Can the fillings in your teeth really pick up radio signals? Are tanning bed patrons getting baked from inside out, and could silicone implants actually explode at a high altitude? Learn these answers and more in tests that separate the real from the really out there! This fascinating collection of 12 episodes from seasons 2 and 3, available for the first time in one four-DVD box set, includes a never-before-seen bonus feature: "MythBusters: Revealed" -- a behind-the-scenes look that reveals all the gaffes, goofs and experiments gone awry that make up a typical episode of MythBusters. Includes these 12 favorite episodes: Exploding Toilet - Barrel of Bricks Cell Phone Destroys Gas Station Penny Drop Buried Alive Lightning Strikes/Tongue Piercing Killer Brace Position Cooling a Six-Pack Is Yawning Contagious? Hollywood on Trial Son of a Gun Shop 'til You Drop

I found it strange that there is no list of episodes, but decided to order the set anyway. I wasn't disappointed: there is some great classic stuff in this set. The episodes are 1 - 6, 34, 36, 37, 40 and 43 and the shop till you drop and MythBusters revealed specials. [...] There doesn't seem to be any region coding on the DVDs.

The episodes look very good, but sometimes I got the impression that the material wasn't filmed with widescreen viewing in mind, the framing can be on the claustrophobic side. (I.e., zoomed in a bit too far.) The earlier episodes have the myths one after the other, and you can select which one you want to watch. This is great. Unfortunately, in the later episodes we get the more familiar interweaving of the myths so you only get to select the beginning of the myth you want to watch but when the program switches to another myth you have to fast forward manually, there are no additional chapter stops.

Ahh, the Mythbusters: if you haven't stumbled upon this show on the Discovery Channel yet, what are you waiting for? Over the years, Adam and Jamie (and Tory, Grant, and Kari) have thoroughly tackled some of our greatest urban myths, legends, and simply bizarre ideas, using their vast areas of knowlege in the sciences. Watching an episode is like watching the scientific method at work, and the personalities of Adam and Jamie make the show extremely entertaining. The projects they do are great for kids to see (although sometimes their language might not be appropriate for young people, depending on how uptight you are about that sort of thing) because they show how working through a problem can lead to very interesting results. I've learned a lot by watching this show.

This DVD set is very bare-bones. Only one behind-the-scenes feature, no commentaries, just full-length episodes (I think there may be some extra footage thrown in here and there; there are a couple small experiments that I don't remember seeing from the TV version). Plus, the episodes they chose for the set seem kind of arbitrary, just random ones from seasons 2 and 3. However, the new low price is MUCH better than the $60 or so you used to have to pay at the Discovery Channel website. I recommend this set to anyone who has ever been curious about their world. You will not be disappointed.

Trying to find a present for my grand nephew is so difficult. He is 11 years old and loves to download apps for everything. The other night I asked my nephew what my GN was doing as he was so quiet. Lo and behold he was watching 'Mythbusters' which I had never heard about. My nephew told me he absolutely loved the show.

My dilemma of Christmas shopping was solved and if there are any problems when he receives it will update this review.

Most highly recommended.

Got myth? Who are you going to call?
Consider - the lovely quiet Jamie Hyneman and the eclectically loud and funny Adam Savage, THE MYTHBUSTERS plus (their beautiful and wonderful staff of Mythbusters: Kari Byron, Jessi Combs, Grant Imahara, Tory Belleci, Robert Lee, Nikos Andronikos and so forth...)
I saw one of their TV Show Seasons and I've purchased all of their TV Show Seasons available for sale, plus all of the 10 Collections and All of their Specials.
Yes, entertaining, worthwhile and something that never gets old, great explosions, curious informational tid-bits everybody should have whether it is a James Bond special effects or some other show, etc... Something for everybody! Buy it before they're gone, hurry up! I love this show!

I'm not an expert.
I am NOT a professional reviewer--though I play one on Amazondotcom--
I live in a country ("across the 'pond'") where if I want to SEE this
show I have to BUY the videos.
I do know what I like.
I LOVE this show.

Mythbusters: Collection 2
Mythbusters - Collection 3
Mythbusters: Collection 4
Mythbusters: Collection 5

A friend's recommendation led me to order this DVD and I was not disappointed. A quirky presentation style makes all the episodes highly entertaining and we enjoyed seeing the fabrication of many of the props,
